Seattle’s Shoreline Master Program—Proposed Changes
featuring Maggie Glowacki

The City of Seattle’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) is comprehensively updating Seattle’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) for the first time since 1987. The SMP constitutes the policies and regulations governing development and uses on and adjacent to marine and freshwater shorelines. Learn how the proposed new shoreline rules affect you and your neighborhood from DPD’s Maggie Glowacki.  To review the draft regulations, director’s report and supporting material, go to www.seattle.gov/dpd/Planning/ShorelineMasterProgramUpdate/.

The February meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood.  If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at jeannieh@serv.net.

Founded in 1948, the Seattle Community Council Federation is one of the nation's oldest and most active coalitions of neighborhood groups. Yearly dues for member groups are $50. SCCF welcomes new member groups, and encourages renewal by groups whose membership in SCCF may have lapsed. Individual donations are also welcome and tax deductible, and go very far, as SCCF is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization. Please mail your check to SCCF, 2370 Yale Avenue East, Seattle, WA 98102-3310. For questions, contact treasurer Chris Leman, (206) 322-5463, cleman@oo.net.
